Our report for 2017
We recognise the power of a diverse, inclusive and gender balanced workforce where everyone has the opportunity to give their best. We also acknowledge that the diversity issues holding us back will not be addressed overnight.
However, we are committed to bringing about lasting, sustainable change. We want to use this as an opportunity to engage and encourage our staff to share their views with us, to highlight barriers, celebrate where we are doing well and influence further actions that can help us reduce the gender pay gap. We also recognise our managers have a significant role to play in bringing about change, influencing their colleagues and challenging assumptions. We have identified four priority areas for action highlighted in this report.
We acknowledge that these initiatives alone will not remove the gender pay gap or improve all areas of our diversity. However, we believe that our commitment to taking action over sustained periods will achieve the changes we need.
Only in this way can we reduce and ultimately eradicate the gender pay gap and create a truly inclusive, gender balanced organisation.
